1952 78 rpm record
In his discography for Noack, praguefrank gives a recording date of "ca. November 1952" in Houston at Gold Star. http://countrydiscoghraphy2.blogspot.com/2013/09/eddie-noack.html
Wikipedia lists 4 Star X-65 as released "ca. 12-52." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eddie_Noack So we'll go with 1952 with the caveat that this is rather late in the year and an early 1953 release date can't be ruled out. I have "nuthin'" to add to arc_claire's comment other than that the arrangement and wacky chord changes in the song are pretty interesting.

"Nothing" by Eddie Noack is a playful classic '50s country song, heavy on slide guitar, cheeky innuendo, and honky tonk piano. At the end, however, Noack catches "nothing" cheating and gets "two black eyes." This admission only hints at the darkness he is capable of—he is known for his 1968 song "Psycho," in which he takes on the role of a serial killer.
